Hey fellow sewing friends! I’m over on the AK Patterns blog today showing how to add inset sleeves to the gorgeous Abi Jumpsuit, by mashing it with their Sheona top. Actually, there are three changes –
- how to change from dolman to inset sleeves
- how to add a front facing instead of a band
- how to create a back facing and understitch
I used a lovely black ponte from Stitchin’ Pretties to create this jumpsuit, and the structure of ponte is SO perfect for a pattern like this, featuring darts and pleats. It has a certain sophistication with the smooth face face of the fabric, the lovely structure, and the deep black has a certain sexiness to it!
